God’s Truth For Today

     The majestic throne, high and lifted up, where the Supreme King is enthroned and overseeing His vast realms, is the only One to receive our worship.  Everything else is secondary and we should make it our top priority in our life to see that we are seeking with all the strength that is in us to know that we really do know the truth.  The only place to find the truth is from the all-knowing God of the universe.  If we seek elsewhere, we are headed in the wrong direction.  And first of all if we are going to understand the truth we will obey it and take it into our life step by step as we learn what God says to do, for He says to be doers of the Word. Also the Holy Spirit is given to those that obey.

     To help us in the last days to understand better and more fully the requirements for entrance to His kingdom God has told us in Revelation 12:17, 19:10, that He would give His people on planet earth the privilege of communicating with heaven, the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He promised to give those who obey Him, the Spirit Of Prophecy.  So this planet of sinned cursed people have the abundant awesome Words of the great God of heaven laid out before us so we can live forever if we choose to study and obey every Word.  For He is a very strict and particular, perfect God who does not change.  He could never be otherwise or He would not be God.  He can do as He sees fit and we are not to say what He can or cannot do because we do not even come near the likeness of His character.  So to make things more clear to us and give us understanding that can not be questioned when compared with the Bible He sent to this planet the Spirit Of Prophecy which is the Testimony of Jesus that are written out by the pen of Ellen G. White.  This is not her ideas.  Anyone seeking truth with an open believing heart who loves Jesus will love His testimony and delight in it all the way through.

     It is the God of heaven that brought to the Advent people the messages so clear and beautiful to raise up the Seventh-Day Adventist church.  The message is all of God’s presentation to reach our hearts to receive His message of salvation so we can live with Him forever!  What an awesome God.  He is longing for us to come and live with Him!  Do you want to live with Him more than anything else!  Is there anything more attractive?  Jesus says that this world is soon to pass away but His Word will stand forever, so let’s choose Jesus and His Word.

    There is not one thing wrong with the message that Jesus has given in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, but, we look around and see that something terribly wrong is going on, but it is not wrong with God or His Words!  It is a fact that His covenant has been broken by the people. 

     “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”  Isaiah 9:16

     What things that are going on right now, God told us would happen.

     “Living Temple contains the Alpha of these theories. The Omega would follow in a little while. I tremble for our people. These beautiful representations are similar to the temptation that the enemy brought to Adam and Eve in Eden.”

     God has sent warning to this world and if we ask and obey He will show us how to meet it all in the Name of the Lord and give discernment to know right from wrong and truth from error.

     "One thing it is certain is soon to be realized,--the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout." Series B #7, p 56 (December 4, 1905).


     “The battle that is raging will grow more fierce as the end approaches. Those who are in unity with satanic agencies are designated by the Lord as the children of darkness. There is not, and cannot be, a natural enmity between fallen angels and fallen humans. Both are evil. Through apostasy both cherish evil sentiments. Wicked angels and wicked people are leagued in a desperate confederacy against the good. Satan knew that if he could induce the human race, as he had induced angels, to unite with him in his rebellion, he would have a strong force with which to carry on his rebellion.”

     The worship service in a lot of places tells anyone who reads the Bible, that the Lord is not in the worship where there is loud music with dancing and drums and puppets and cartoons.  These things originate with Satan, the father of lies and deception.

     “The things you have described . . . the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. And this is called the moving of the Holy Spirit.    

     The Holy Spirit never reveals itself in such methods, in such a bedlam of noise. This is an invention of Satan to cover up his ingenious methods for making of none effect the pure, sincere, elevating, ennobling, sanctifying truth for this time. . . . A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of Satanic agencies blend with the din and noise, to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working. . . . Those participating in the supposed revival receive impressions which lead them adrift. They cannot tell what they formerly knew regarding Bible principles.    

     No encouragement should be given to this kind of worship.” Mar 234

     “I was shown the necessity of those who believe that we are having the last message of mercy, being separate from those who are daily imbibing new errors. I saw that neither young nor old should attend their meetings; for it is wrong to thus encourage them while they teach error that is a deadly poison to the soul and teach for doctrines the commandments of men. The influence of such gatherings is not good. If God has delivered us from such darkness and error, we should stand fast in the liberty wherewith He has set us free and rejoice in the truth. God is displeased with us when we go to listen to error, without being obliged to go; for unless He sends us to those meetings where error is forced home to the people by the power of the will, He will not keep us. The angels cease their watchful care over us, and we are left to the buffetings of the enemy, to be darkened and weakened by him and the power of his evil angels; and the light around us becomes contaminated with the darkness.”  EW 124

     With so many of the Adventist pastors taking NLP and Spiritual Formation and using it on the people and hypnotizing their congregations it has to be the fact that the people no longer have their own mind but are under the control of Satan and the strong delusion that God told us would come in the last days.  This is a very serious thing, but people sneer and say they don’t believe it and don’t think it is important to be so strict.  But it only takes one little sin to separate us entirely from God as this statement clearly says. 

      “The noble object will be ever before them, to glorify God, and gain the immortal inheritance. This prospect will swallow up all besides of an earthly nature. God will have a separate and distinct people from the world. And if any have a desire to imitate the fashions of the world, that they do not immediately subdue, just so soon God ceases to acknowledge them as his children. They are the children of the world, and darkness. They want to be as much like the world as possible, and those that profess to have put on Christ, by thus doing put him off, and show that they are strangers to grace, strangers to the meek and lowly Jesus. If they had acquainted themselves with him, they would walk worthy of him.” 

4bSG 22 

    Why don't they prophesy smooth things, and cry: Peace, peace? Then everything would move on smoothly."   
     These are the true feelings of many of our people. And Satan exults at his success in controlling the minds of so many who profess to be Christians. He has deceived them, benumbed their sensibilities, and planted his hellish banner right in their midst, and they are so completely deceived that they know not that it is he. The people have not erected graven images, yet their sin is no less in the sight of God. They worship mammon. They love worldly gain. Some will make any sacrifice of conscience to obtain their object. God's professed people are selfish and self-caring. They love the things of this world, and have fellowship with the works of darkness. They have pleasure in unrighteousness. They have not love toward God nor love for their neighbors. They are idolaters, and are worse, far worse, in the sight of God than the heathen, graven-image worshipers who have no knowledge of a better way.”

     “Ministers and Physicians Drawn Into the Snare.-- There are doctors and ministers who have been influenced by the hypnotism exercised by the father of lies. Notwithstanding the warnings given, Satan's sophistries are being accepted now just as they were accepted in the heavenly courts. The science by which our first parents were deceived is deceiving men today. Ministers and physicians are being drawn into the snare.”

     So in this world of sorrow and misery, where the rebellion is rampant beyond description, we do not have to be a part of it, Yes, meet the people where they are, for this is our work, but, if we ask for the Lord’s guidance, He will keep us from the sin and snares and fit us for the home of glory above.

     We can climb the ladder of the knowledge of our Precious Jesus right up to the top of the tree of wisdom where God is willing to share with His faithful obedient flock astounding truth.  Then through all eternity continue to ponder in awe the marvels of the great plan of salvation.
